2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)what do think young starters Jared Eickhoff, Mike Bolsinger and Lance McCullers careers look like?
(caseyj15 from Medford, OR)
This may surprise some, but I like really like Eickhoff maybe more than McCullers. You might not know this, but according to BP's PITCHf/x leaderboards, Eickhoff's slider generated more whiffs-per-swing (55%) than any other starter who threw at least 100 sliders last season. Join the #ILikeEickhoff movement today!

I wrote a little about McCullers during out category breakdown series...The strikeouts (9.1 K/9) establish a nice floor to start out with, but my big concern is whether or not he can survive as a starter relying almost exclusively on two pitches (fastball and curveball). The primary and secondary components of his arsenal are exquisite, but I think if his changeup continues to develop, he's going to be special...For some reason the Dodgers don't like Bolsinger nearly as much as I do...Sadly... (George Bissell)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Delino Deshields and Mike BOlsinger for Luis Valbuena? Who wins the trade?
(Brandon from Chicago)
I'd take the duo. Valbuena already has fallen off of the map with the power. (Mike Gianella)
